SSL Visibility

The majority of malware and data exfiltration hides within SSL/TLS encryption, blinding your security inspection tools. Decrypt and orchestrate to make your controls more effective.

WHAT IS SSL VISIBILITY AND ORCHESTRATION?


Nearly 90% of all Internet traffic is encrypted. And F5 Labs threat research shows that 68% of malware uses encryption to hide when calling back to command and control.

Decrypting and re-encrypting traffic is computationally intensive, and many inspection tools—like next-generation firewalls and malware protection platforms—are simply unable to decrypt at scale. But visibility into encrypted traffic is not enough. The daisy chain of decryption and re-encryption through multiple security devices induces unnecessary latency and complexity. Policy-based orchestration breaks the daisy chain to most effectively stop malware and protect user privacy.

HOW TO UNCOVER ATTACKS HIDING IN ENCRYPTION

CHALLENGES WITH SSL/TLS ENCRYPTION

Blinded Business Intelligence

The BI tools you rely on to provide user activity insights are blind.

Operational Complexity

Disparate policies on multiple inspection tools and key management increase overhead.

Hidden Threats

Malware calls home and data is exfiltrated over encrypted channels.

Privacy Violations

Decrypting all traffic can violate privacy laws and regulations.

Increased Security Cost

Decryption on daisy-chained security tools causes performance degradation and latency.
